Change It to Me

DELIVERANCE COMES FROM THE LORD

 So we can say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper,  so I will have no fear.  What can mere people do to me?”Hebrews 13:6 Holy Bible New Living Translation.           

 Change it to me Instead of we we can say with confidence say I can say with confidence. Instead of saying what can man do to me say what can my boss do to me when I refuse to do something unethical?                                                       

What can the politically correct lie breals do to me when I stand up and speak the truth and refuse to cow tow to them?                                                           

What can the government do to me when I stand my Jesus’ solid rock when they are trying to abuse my God given rights?                                             

What can satan do to me when I stand firm and resist his temptation?

He is stronger than me but is he stronger than Jehovah? Because I am Jehovah’s child can he conquer me?

Satan is smarter than me but is he smarter than the Holy Spirit? Than because the Holy Spirit is my protector do you think satan can out con the Holy Spirit? Do you think the Holy Spirit will allow him to entrap me?    

Jehovah is the original super hero of which none can defeat. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves ) for saving me from the devil and his minions wicked schemes to destroy me. Thank you for providing the wisdom, grace and strength to defeat the wicked when they attack me. I exalt You in the name of the Warrior King whom shall one day defeat all wickedness Jesus Christ. Amen

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

You can Thank Him For

SING IT

 Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Try this every day for a month and see how much your disposition changes:

Every morning thank Jehovah. You can thank Him for the bed you have slept on while many in the world sleep on cold dirt.

You can thank Him for the adobe you are living in while many are living in plastic tents you would be put in jail if you let your dog sleep in it.

Thank Him for the security of your adobe while many are living in war zones where their next moment may be their last or if they are captured they will be tortured and murdered.

You can thank Him for the heart in your adobe while many are shivering with nothing but a blanket to keep them warm.

You can thank Him for the air conditioning while many are in such sweltering heat they can barely breathe.

You can thank Him for the clean water to shower in, drink and cook your food with while many have enough water to cook and drink only.

You can thank Him for the food in your adobe while many are digging their meals out of the garbage dump.

I have seen all of these things and get angered when listening to the whine puppies cry about how hard done they are in the first world countries.

May I suggest going and living in third world countries for three months and then see how grateful you are to be living in the lap of luxury in the industrialized world.

“God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say ‘thank you?'” — William A. Ward

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for all of Your wonderful daily provisions for me both great and small, for those I see and for those that are unknown to me. I praise You in the name of Your greatest gift to me Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

It is Impossible for a Christian

A STOUT HEART

This is why we work hard and continue to struggle, for our hope is in the living God. 1 Timothy 4:10 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

It is impossible for a Christian to give up. We all work hard at being acceptable children to our Heavenly Father.

Yes there are going to be constant struggles.

Christianity is one war that continues until we reach Heavens gate. Just when one battle is finished and we rest a little another one begins. So many times we feel exhausted and defeated. We desire to give it all up and walk away. But, as Christians when we go before our Heavenly Father, He blesses us with strength, wisdom and the weapons to continue the fight. The longer we are in this battle the stronger our hope is in our Heavenly Father.

Now hope here is not the same as hoping to win the lottery. Rather it means confidence in Our Heavenly Fathers care, provision and deliverance and the eternal Heavenly home He has prepared for us.

“God never promises to remove us from our struggles. He does promise, however, to change the way we look at them.” — Max Lucado

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for enlightening me with Divine insight into the reason for the constant battles that must be fought on a daily basis in every Christians life ( including mine). This gift encourages me on when all seems lost to victory which glorifies You. I joyously praise You in the name of He whose empty grave brought eternal victory to oh so many. Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

But by Subtraction

 But godliness actually is a source of great gain when accompanied by contentment [that contentment which comes from a sense of inner confidence based on the sufficiency of God]. 1 Timothy 6:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

The more you have, the less happy and contented you are. That is a proven fact.

Most folks are puppets in the hands of big monopolies. They say if you have this you will be happy. Then, they charge you exorbitant amounts of money to purchase their product. Because you cannot afford it, it puts you into debt. Then, next year they come out with a new and improved product and the process it repeated.

If it gets between you and Christ, get rid of it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Going into debt and working long hours only to be exhausted keeps you away from Christ.

Live a simple life, you will be much more contented.

I speak from a lot of experience. I have always lived a simple, frugal lifestyle and for the most part am very contented. I see those I grew up with being very materialistic and are the most miserable folks you ever meet.

For me, my greatest joy, and satisfaction is when sharing a conversation with Jesus. It need not be about my problems (although there is nothing wrong with that but it is not to be the only time you talk with Him). Many times it is when we are walking in His creation (nature) that we just talk about anything and everything like the best friends we are. It is so enjoyable. He opens my eyes to all the beauty around me and how He loves me and takes care of me. I am contented with His daily provision in my life.

I have lived in abundance and in abject poverty but learning to depend upon and be grateful for Jehovahs daily provisions is one of the greatest lessons learned. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now I do not worry about where my next meal is coming from nor hoard things. Now I do not foolishly waste His daily provisions but use them wisely as a manner in which to show proper respect and appreciation for my Fathers provisions.

“Contentment is not by addition but by subtraction: seeking to add a thing will not bring contentment. Instead, subtracting from your desires until you are satisfied only with Christ brings contentment.” Jeremiah Burroughs

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for patiently teaching me that my wants will never bring me satisfaction but being content in Your daily provision brings a lot of contentment, peace, appreciation, respect and peace. Next to being blessed with loving communion with You, these are the greatest of gifts You daily bless me with. I am in deep gratitude to You in the name of Your greatest gift to me Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

The Tragedy of Life

VOICE OF GOD

For I know that the Lord is great Psalm 135:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The longer we walk with Christ, the more we get to know Him (although, we will never really get to know everything about Him because there is just too much of Him to ever have the time to learn it all).

The more we get to know Him the greater He becomes to us. This greatness it exhibited in His love, power, wisdom and provision of which there is none to compare. \

“The tragedy of life and of the world is not that men do not know God; the tragedy is that, knowing Him, they still insist on going their own way.” William Barclay  

Jehovah reveals Himself to us in many wonderful and awesome ways every day. Because of this revelation we should be drawn towards Him and the deeper the desire to obey Him. After all, it is because He loves us that He wants the best for us.

Therefore, should we not follow the advice of the all knowing God to direct every aspect of our lives?

The reason fools reject Jehovah is because of arrogance and greed. The advice Jehovah blesses them with does not suit what they selfishly desire in their lives so they foolishly reject it and arrogantly follow their own thoughts (which are influenced by the world around then and he who influences the world is satan) to attain what they greedily want. The end result of this pathetic attempt is a worthless life with a huge hole in their heart because that can only be filled with Jehovahs love (which He only blesses those who belong to Him with).

There is no such thing as atheist, there is only intentional idiots. Joseph a son of Jehovah      

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah GELAH RAZ (Revealer of Mysteries) for all of the amazing ways in which You reveal the mystery of You to me. It is truly awesome the manner in which You reveal Your majesty, wisdom, love and compassion. I exalt You in the name of Your awesome Son Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Trust Him For the Rest of the Way. ‘

GOD IS WITH US

Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’ Isaiah 41:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In our walk with Jehovah there is constant fear. That is because Jehovah is constantly calling us to step out into the known and trust in His guidance and provision.

From personal experience it can not be fearful but down right terrifying.

He always calls us out in baby steps in the beginning of our walk with Him and each time we listen and obey we see His providence and then He asks us to take bigger steps as we mature in our relationship with Him. When you are obedient unto Him, you will be amazed at the incredible things He will accomplish in your life and through your life.

Even for us that have walked with Him for a long time there are still times of fear in listening to and obeying Him. The thing is though, that the more you step out into the unknown in obedience, the more you learn to trust and have confidence in Him. In reflection in our walk with Him we will be in constant awe and admiration for Him for succeeding in doing so many impossible feats in our lives and what He has done through our lives .

“At times all of us experience fear. But don’t allow fear to keep you from being used by God. He has kept you thus far; trust Him for the rest of the way.” — Woodroll Kroll

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for benefiting me with Your Holy presence throughout my life. May my confidence in You and the rest of the trinity grow stronger every day. I exalt Thee in the name of He who encourages me constantly Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Is an Empty Life

foolish acts

 

 A pretentious, showy life is an empty life; a plain and simple life is a full life. Proverbs 13:7 The Message

I remember being laughed at for having a simple basic cell phone. Can it be used to send and receive calls, yes. Can it be used to send and receive tex messages Yes. Then what more do I need. These folks would then laugh and tell me about all the gadgets on their cell phones. The questions asked would be do you need or use them do you know how to work them all they why did you waste all that money purchasing something you will not use Of course they would brag about it being a certain make while mine was from a lesser known (although reliable) maker. Then they would be asked how much they paid for said cell phone to which they would respond that they paid over a hundred times more that I did. So you went into debt just to pump up your ego? Sounds foolish to me. Then they are miserable because they become slaves to the banks paying for an overpriced piece of metal while I am living a contented life.

It is the same with clothes, food and living accommodations and every other aspect of life. They stupidly go into debt way over their head and live a miserable life while I live a simple life walking with Christ and am quite contented and grateful for His blessings of meeting my daily needs.

He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves abundance with its gain. This too is vanity (emptiness). Ecclesiastes. 5:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Follow the proper leader.

Jesus lived a simple life in communion with Jehovah and was very content. Should we not follow His lead? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Greed and vanity are a sin and there is always a price to pay for following the devils lead

“Sin will take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay, and cost you more than you want to pay.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Exaltation unto You oh most sanctified Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for generous provision You faithfully provided me with every day. I extol Thee in the name of He whose cherished blood provides the key to open Heavens door Jesus Christ. Amen.

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing
